Many website links recently suggested that Garuda Indonesia offering two free tickets in the celebration of its 69th anniversary. However, the state-owned airline management denied the news.
“Garuda Indonesia ensures that such promotion info was invalid and is not officially from Garuda Indonesia,” said the company’s secretary Hengki Heriandono in a written statement dated Wednesday, May 9.
Hengki asserted that Garuda Indonesia has never released such information related to promotion of ticket discounts or free tickets. He reminded all ticket promotion and marketing program were cited in Garuda Indonesia official application and social media.
Earlier, a website http://www.garuda-indonesa.com/tikets and http://www.xn--garuda-indonesa-llc.com broadcasted in short message stating Garuda Indonesia offers two free tickets to commemorate its anniversary.
In the website, visitors are required to fill a survey. Instead of getting the two free tickets, visitors are asked to share the link via WhatsApp.
Hengki calls on the public not to trust false news or hoax and confirm all promotion info through Garuda Indonesia official platform or contact the 24-hour Garuda Call Center.
